Angela is a mom of four, a Mama's Friend mama, and has been a doula with
Mama's Friend since 2013.
In the spring of 2018 Angela purchased Mama's Friend, and is thrilled by the opportunity to continue developing
Mama's Friend, and to continue empowering mamas near and far.
Angela has over 20 years experience in an around nursery, labor and delivery, and has attended hundreds of births around the world. Angela is pro "knowing your options" for moms and "minimal interventions" for mom and baby unless "medically necessary" and knows - personally - that medicine serves a purpose given certain events and circumstances. Her practice is evidence-based and is centered on "go with the flow, but know your options" - she wants mamas (and dads) to feel educated on all their options, listened to and respected, and their choices supported during pregnancy, labor, and delivery, as well as with their newborn.
Angela and Mama's Friend are for “birth your own way” birth options - she and her team support all births, no matter what mamas' choices are.
